“Whether you change the linen or stitch up wounds, cook the food or dispense the medicines, it is in your hands to help build a public service worthy of all those who gave their lives for the dream of democracy.” 

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, President, South Africa

Who We Are

Agenda 2063 envisions a continent in which there is a universal culture of good governance, democratic values, gender equality, and respect for human rights, justice and the rule of law. AU Watch works with the AU, its Member States, civil society and other local actors to establish and strengthen political and civic organizations, safeguard elections, and promote citizen participation, openness and accountability in government. We work to develop and implement policies that aim to building strong well governed institutions and enact laws that will ensure Africa’s citizens are fully engaged and involved in policy making and development initiates and that these citizens are provided the safe and secure environments in which to live.AU Watch works to promote peaceful, just and inclusive politics in the whole of Africa.
